URL :  Smart Cities: Investing In The Future
Author : The Economist
Detail : eBook Edition: 2018

The term “smart cities” conjures visions of a future where digital technology monitors and connects everything from buildings to street lights to self-driving cars. It allows governments to provide better city  services  more  efficiently,  creating  a  more  accessible,  safer,  cleaner  and  greener  environment  in  the process. The city ’s citizens are able to better utilise all the city has to offer, from the convenience of their smartphones. Most cities today are far from that vision but many are working towards it, both investing in smart infrastructure and creating ecosystems that allow urban innovation to flourish.

However,  many  cities,  constrained  by  austerity,  must  look  to  the  private  sector  to  fund  this  development. Institutional investors, seeking yield and looking to meet their long-term liabilities, have long been touted as the ideal sources of funding for infrastructure, whether smart or not. So why isn’t that much-needed flood of investment happening?

This  report  will  examine  the  investment  landscape  for  smart  cities,  and  investigate  the  related  opportunities and risks for investors. (From Author)
